ORGANIZATION: Ten Lives Cat Rescue


Ten Lives Cat Rescue is a 501(c)(3), nonprofit organization based in Rhode Island. We are 100% volunteer-powered and rely on the generosity of volunteers to complete our life-saving mission. We are a foster-based program and do not have a facility or shelter. Without the generosity of foster families, we are unable to save the lives of those who desperately need our help.

Foster families provide safe and loving homes for our cats or kittens until they find forever homes. Fosters provide critical information that allows Ten Lives to place cats into the best-matched homes. In some cases, they provide medical or behavioral support so that our cats or kittens can find the homes they deserve.

Please note, Ten Lives Cat Rescue covers all veterinary costs. Thanks to our generous donors, we are also able to provide food, litter, and other supplies to foster families.

In short, Foster Families Save Lives.

**Please note: Foster volunteers must be located in Rhode Island.

About Ten Lives Cat Rescue


Foster Based, Pawtucket, RI 02860, US

Mission Statement

Ten Lives Cat Rescue is committed to saving homeless, abused, and abandoned cats by providing veterinary care, rehabilitation services, and then placing them into loving adoptive homes. We are dedicated to giving a second chance to those who have been forgotten: seniors, the physically and emotionally scarred, the behaviorally challenged, and those who need critical medical care. Along with our immediate mission to rescue cats, Ten Lives is dedicated to educating communities about cat overpopulation and inspiring change.


Ten Lives is a 501(c)(3), nonprofit rescue that is 100% volunteer-powered. We do not have any paid staff or employees and rely on the generosity of our community to complete our life-saving mission. We are a foster-based organization and all of our adoptable cats reside in foster homes until adopted. Our program does not receive state, city, or municipal funding. All of our critical life-saving funds come from generous donors who believe in our mission statement!

Ten Lives was founded in February 2018 in an effort to reduce the homeless cat population in Rhode Island and inspire change in our community. In May 2018 we accepted the first cat into our program and since then we have provided services for over 1000 cats. At Ten Lives, we're dedicated to giving a second chance to those who have been neglected and forgotten, including cats in need of socialization and critical medical care. In response to the overwhelming need for help with both populations, we created The Forgotten Feline Program and The Lazzy Fund.

The Lazzy Fund:

In 2020, Ten Lives launched a low cost spay and neuter voucher program in an effort to reduce the cat population in Rhode Island and inspire owners to spay or neuter their cat. To date, we have distributed nearly 300 vouchers to community members!
